Louis Walsh is holding auditions in Ireland for a brand new boyband, after both Westlife and Boyzone died in that tragic but dramatic plane crash just off Donegal. Or did I dream that? Ah, happy dreams.

Says the Boyzone and Westlife manufacturer: “It has been twelve years since I last did auditions for a boyband. It’s for boys over sixteen from anywhere, any nationality, but they must be prepared to work hard. [And] vocals are key. I’m looking for five pop stars and I have a major record company and a high profile UK partner”.

The auditions will take place in Dublin from next Sunday. I hope plenty of suitably pretty boys show up. If only there was some way of doing this kind of thing on prime time television, with a massive TV network funding auditions all over the country. But you have to make do with what’s possible, I suppose.
